What is Gift Aid?
Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.
Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:
- Gift Aid Admission
- Standard Admission
If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.
Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.
An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:
|Amount paid by visitor||£11.00||£10.00|
|Tax refund from Government*||£2.75||£0.00|
|Total received by the National Trust||£13.75||£10.00|

- What to bring and wear
- The Mansion is indoors, but can be cold so outdoor clothing is advised. There are areas of the Mansion which are upstairs, so sturdy footwear is also advisable.
- The majority of the Mansion, including this exhibition, is viewable from the ground floor. There are some steps to come into the Mansion, so please request disabled access at the family entrance.
- For disabled access to the upper floor of the Mansion, we do have a 'Stairclimber' available for use. This can be pre-booked for usage by calling 01625 374 400, and must be booked at least one day prior to your visit to the Mansion. Alternatively, we have a booklet displaying the items and rooms on show in the upper parts of the house. Please ask at the Family Entrance for access to this book. Unfortunately, disabled access to the cellars is not possible due to the nature of the stairways. Please be aware the Mansion is open from Wednesdays through to Sunday, and open Bank Holiday Monday, throughout the high season.
